Alisha Glass was a state champion and All-State volleyball player at Leland High School. She went on to become a national champion and All-American at Penn State University. Now that she is apart of Team USA volleyball, she's bringing a special connection back to her community.
Glass was in attendance Thursday afternoon at her former high school for a special jersey retirement ceremony.
School officials wanted to retire her #7 uniform but she insisted that they continue to use that number.
Instead she hopes her three uniforms that will be hung up in their main hallway will serve as motivation for students to achieve their ultimate goals.
